4:00 PM - PALAZZO BEMBO, ENTRANCE
Performance by artist Helen Kirwan
Kirwan attempts to measure and empty the Venetian canals with her buckets.
She explores the metaphorical performance of memory through her futile, absurd performances, endlessly repeated. The sensorimotor/ haptic connections between her body, the land and the elements serve also as metaphors for way- nding and navigation through the confusion and fog of loss and bereavement. She is interested in the question of what is memory and how might it function and be visually represented.
